If there is a place
Where all our
memories escape to.
A secret sanctuary we can never find.
If the memories creep from our minds
In the middle of the night,
So silent that we do not
Even remember they were ever
I wonder if they float through the bright blue sky
and whisper to us from up above,
Hoping we will notice them,
Hoping we will claim them
